With summer in full swing one of the most sought after textures to wear during the warmer months is curly hair. Although we absolutely love this texture it can be a down right pain to maintain! From dry, brittle hair. To fuzzy hair due to humidity to issues can be endless.
In the spirit of summer here are a few hacks you can use to insure the longevity of your curly tresses.
1. Start With Healthy Hair Bundles
No matter how many products you may purchase be sure to start with healthy hair. Ensure that your bundles are tightly sealed to avoid unnecessary shedding. Healthy hair will feature a natural luster and move-ability.
At some point during your installation process you will loose moisture and natural luster from your hair. This fact holds true to natural hair as well. Using products that replenish moisture is essential to the longevity of your hair.
At the JazJacksonCollection we recommend using the following products:
Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Shampoo & Conditioner.
*Carols Daughter Black Vanilla Shampoo & Conditioner
*Pure Coconut Oil
3. Nightly Maintance
How you care for your hair at night is just as important as caring for it during the day. Be sure to place your hair in a "Pineapple" to keep your hair bouncy and full. Also, be sure to sleep on a satin sleep case or wrap your hair in a satin bonnet. Wearing a satin bonnet or sleeping on a dating pillow case will ensure that your hair does not tangle or frizz while sleeping.
4. Don't use alcohol based products
No matter what you do, be sure to steer clear of products with alcohol. It's a complete nightmare for curly hair. Alcohol based products will dry the hair out causing dry brittle hair. Try using sulfate-free shampoos to clean your hair. If you traditionally rely on oil sheen to add shine to your hair, try mixing a small portion of organic coconut oil with water and your favorite conditioner. Not only will this replenish moisture to your hair the coconut oil will provide a natural shine!
